Geocache Description:


Pohled na Zbraslav / View to Zbraslav

[Cz]
Hradiste Sance bylo soucasti keltskeho oppida Zavist, ale pravdepodobne bylo osidleno jeste pred spojenim se zavistskym hradistem, jez stalo na vysokem vrchu na protejsim brehu Brezanskeho potoka.
Cele oppidum bylo chraneno nejen strmymi svahy, ale i systemem mohutnych valu a prikopu, ktere muzeme videt v obou castech oppida, na Zavisti i na Sancich.
Je znamo, ze v mistech keltskeho osidleni se tu a tam objevi poklad, obvykle bedlive strezeny nejakou nadprirozenou bytosti. Nejinak je tomu i na Sancich.
Za bezmesicnych noci lze v temnych hvozdech spatrit matne mihotave svetelko. Mnozi ctihodni zbraslavsti obcane neodolali jeho vabeni a vydali se do lesu. Vetsina z nich se vsak nikdy nevratila a ti, kdo prezili, nebyli schopni podat verohodne svedectvi a nasledne bidne skoncili v blazinci. Z jejich nesouvisleho blaboleni vsak lze vyvodit, ze kdo se k pokladu priblizil, setkal se s hrozive vypadajicim duchem davneho keltskeho krale, vladce Zavisti, jenz neco septal prastarym jazykem, snad keltstinou, a dle ocekavani odmital poklad vydat. Teprve nedavno se zjistilo, ze to, co bylo povazovano za keltske zaklinadlo a znelo nejak jako „dzi-pi-es, dzi-pi-es“, byl ve skutecnosti navod k ziskani pokladu. Badatele se domnivaji, ze kdyz se osoba, ktera bude v ruce drzet GPSku, pokusi vyzvednout poklad, duch nad ni nebude mit zadnou moc. To je zatim jen hypoteza, ktera ceka na overeni.

Kes se nachazi v prirodni rezervaci tesne u cesty nad skalnatym svahem na jihozapadnim okraji hradiste Sance, na jednom z mist, odkud mate jizni cast Zbraslavi jako na dlani.
Pristup je bud odbockou z Keltske stezky (Tocna - Zavist) nebo odspodu z asfaltky v osade Zavist.
Je to docela frekventovane misto. Prosim, kes peclive zamaskujte a ujistete se, ze vas nikdo nevidel. Diky.

[En]
The fort of Sance used to be a part of the Celtic oppidum of Zavist. However, it was probably populated before affiliation to Zavist fort located on a hill on the opposite side of the stream.
The oppidum was protected not only by steep slopes but also by a system of massive bulwarks and moats that are visible in both parts of the oppidum.
It is known that here and there treasure troves loom in the places of Celtic settlements and they are always watchfully guarded by a supernatural creature. And so it is in Sance.
At moonless nights, a glimmering gleam can be seen in dark forests. Numerous honourable Zbraslav citizens failed to resist the temptation and entered the forests. But most of them never returned and a few survivors were not able to give any credible testimony and finally they ended their wretched lives in a nuthouse. From their babbling coud be deduced that anyone who got near the trove met an ominous ghost of an ancient Celtic king. The king was whispering words in a primeval language, perhaps Celtic, and was reluctant to hand the trasure over - pretty obviously. Lately it has been discovered that what was considered a Celtic spell and sounded like „gee-pee-es, gee-pee-es“ was as a matter of fact an instruction to get the treasure trove. Scientists take it that the ghost will have no power over a prospector holding a GPS receiver. However, it is so far only a hypothesis to be proved.

The cache is situated in the nature reserve alongside the footpath above a rocky slope at the south-western border of Sance, at one of wonderful points of view of Zbraslav.
The access is either by a comfortable diversion from the Celtic Path (Tocna - Zavist) or from the road in Zavist.
The place may be quite muggled. Please hide the cache carefully and check you weren't seen.
